SUMMARY-
Many of the Ksatriyas who were cultivating the fields
defied the Brahman land-owners, and troubled them otherwise.
The Brahmans were too weak to protect themselves ; and as
the kingdom of the Rayas disappeared, there was none to
listen to their complaints. Therefore, they were obliged to
migrate to other places, abandoning their native village. The
Ksatriya farmers, having taken shelter under the Haude chief,
joined the neighbouring palaigars, busied themselves in
plundering the villages. The village of Peda-Pasupula
remained in the possession of the Hande chiefs until
£. S. 1574: Nandana, when the country passed into the hands
of the Mnhammadans, The Mussalman officers dispersed the
garrison of the Hande chief, and confiscated the village.
